    ​Yes. If you contact your Bard rep you can get some demos. Our Peds Hem Onc staff identified this to not be an issue based on their skill level but suggested I bring it to Inpt Peds and ER where the opportunity for Port access experience is lower. Very nice total package kit and easy to use $18-21/kit depending on needle size and Power needle vs non Power needle variable selected.

    I know this is a new product.  However, I am wondering if anyone has trialed or is using the Port Stabilizer by BARD access systems (AKA the “Amanda” Port Stabilizer).  Benefits?  Drawbacks?  Benefits with experienced staff vs. more inexperienced staff?
